democratic elections to take place in the north african country in 1991. when the islamic salvation front won the first round, the government called off the voting and cracked down on islamists, forcing many underground. including a notorious terrorist leader with ties to al qaeda. he is reportedly behind this week's attack on the remote desert gas plant. though he first made a name for himself with a string of violent attacks and dramatic kidnappings after he joined an extremist group in the late 1990's. the terror has continued to this day, but the extremists seemed to be losing support. for many algerians, even an authoritarian regime is preferable to an islamist state. algeria is rich in resources, especially gas and oil. and it has hardly any public debt, but average algerians see little benefit from the country's richest. although there is great dissatisfaction from the government, it has not helped the islamists' cause. there's too much fear the country could once again descend into civil war. >> france is reporting some initial successes in mali where government troops had recaptured
as president. that's a hair above the 51% that put him back in office in the november election. 61% say he's easy-going and likable. 55% say he can handle a crisis. 51% say he's a good commander in chief. while only 29% say that he works effectively with congress. we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." one of president obama's first major challenges in his second term will be trying to get significant new gun control legislation through the congress, but can he do it? if the outrageous opposition coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the pr
. and germany's ruling party tries to hold onto power in a key regional election. >> do i have remorse? absolutely. >> lance armstrong apologizes, but can he rebuilt his tarnished reputation? >>> the algerian hostage crisis is over. special forces stormed the remote gas plant, killing 11 gunmen after they took the lives of 74 hostages. -- took the lives of 7 4 hostages. dozens of people are still unaccounted for. at 29 gunmen said to have links with al qaeda are thought to have been killed. >> the first photo to emerge out of what happened shows hostages kneeling captive in the desert. in other pictures broadcast by algerian tv, they are shown group against a wall. we don't know how many of these people survived what was to come. army helicopter swooped over the complex as they were cornered by algerian special forces. the hopes of a clinical rescue operation and release of hostages have been dashed, state media reporting that seven hostages and 11 militants were killed in the final assault. workers from britain, the u.s., japan, and norway are still among those unaccounted for. in nor
to the election if they declare that he dies tomorrow which there is a rumor that they would do that actually going around now, that if he would be declared dead and they called an election within 30 days and the opposition won, meaning the sympathy vote for the candidate which is difficult after what we saw on december 16th and dhaka election we just talked about, chavez has 20 of 23 governors. 11 of the governors that were run by the chavez party are former military officials, including four ministers of defense, who are now governors of their respective states. several of them are all along the office of the control campaign list because of their work with the farc so we have a situation where people are in control of things, so that even if henry embrey de four e elected president in this election it's the opposite -- he's the head of the opposition who ran against chavez and got a 45% to 55% but we are talking about to the even if he was to win, he still would have institutions that are controlled by the chavez government including the supreme court which we just pointed out, including t
, the white house held a reception for newly elected members of the congress, only 27 of the new republican house members showed up. that's out of a record freshman class that totaled 87. more recently no elected republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the
, democrats running for re-election and most of them come from midwestern, western states. they have strong, rural communities and therefore are a lot more open to maintaining gun rights and so you will have a lot of these democrats who will be very nervous voting for any big changes and harry reid is one of them. the national rifle association stayed out of the reelection race and he owes it to them to perhaps temper the debate and not necessarily let all of this go through. >> that's one reason why you're seeing the president take executive action and that's something you heard critics and people who had been his supporters criticized him for not doing more of that in his first term and he's signaling that he's willing to do more of that on these big fights and it's about seizing the moment because the further and further you get from the sandy hook tragedy, the less you're likely to achieve and he's trying to make this happen swiftly. >> let's talk about second terms. how have presidents comparatively, how have they feared in his second term. that's when the big scandal happens. the iran
's rick nolan first got elected. then he took a hiatus for 30 years. now he's back with a lot to say about what's changed. he is sort of everything is old is new again in our meet the new members series. the white house unveils the president's official portrait for the next four years. wait until you get a closer look at the toll of the last four on him. good morning from washington. it's friday, january 18th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. our final "daily rundown" of the obama first term. right to my first reads of the morning. if 2009 was all about hope, 2013 may be about the ability to cope. so says one of our pollsters. if it is possible americans have grown more pessimistic about their leaders in washington and, worse, they think those leaders are now hurting the economy. as president obama prepares to be sworn in for a second term our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows a lagging economy and partisan battles are sa sapping the public confidence replacing the buoyant mood of four years ago with more pessimism now about the future of the country even as t
for putting out an ad like that. the children of elected officials should be off the table. they shouldn't be part of the debate. they haven't proposed these new rules and new proposals, rather, new initiatives. the president has. and he's fair game, but his kids aren't. with respect to what i've said about the congress, they need to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. they need to get off their duff with their 12% rating and understand the reason why they have the kind of approval rating that they do today is because they haven't done enough to work across the aisle. look, this is an area that -- where there could and should be bipartisan support for sensible legislation. universal background checks, there shouldn't be a disagreement about that. better federal state, local coordination. there shouldn't be a debate about that. there are things that we can do and move forward and things that the congress should do. that's what the people of this country expect them to do. >> los angeles mayor antonio villaraigo villaraigosa. >>> we have aaron blake, political reporter for the "
, the question is what urgency to do they place on that. we had an election two months ago where there were two candidates, one was more focused on cutting the deficit and reducing our long term debt and one didn't think it was a big concern. the one who didn't think it was a big concern won the election. yes, voters seem to say that is an issue they agree with, but when it came to election day two months ago that certainly wasn't one of the top issues they voted on because they voted for the candidate who wasn't embody go it. >> heather: through his actions, as well. that leads to this, how f or if it should be raised? should the debt limit be raised again, 23% say yes, but 69% don't agree with the president. they say raise it only after major cuts. there again what cuts would those be but president obama as we know he increased the debt by $6 trillion in his if you are four years. some say that administration overspent by one trillion a year every year since he's been in office. now she demanding the get ceiling to be increased again. do you think he will be listen to the 69% that say only af
, as well. this as you say was history. 16th president to win election to two consecutive terms and be sworn in. now, they have all the ceremonial swearings tomorrow. this more intimate friend in the blue room, family and close friends. amid all the constitutional moments there was also a light family moment where a dad got to talk to his daughter, take a listen. >> thank you sir. [ applause ] >> i did it. all right. thank you everybody. >> reporter: i did it, he said and sasha said you didn't mess up. vice president biden got to try this out first very early this morning. reason why it was so early is that just sotomayor had to get on to a train to go to new york city to sign her books. she was trying to get to barnes & noble this afternoon in new york city. >> gregg: you got to plug that book, that is more than the vice president of the united states. your publisher wants more book sales. [ laughter ] >> gregg: how might tomorrow's big speech by the president really set the tone and tenor for policy in his second term? >> reporter: very important. saw president bush try to do this in 2005
with a political situation. that is why we were elected. but when you start talking about a constitution al mandate, you should not mix apples and oranges and get your politics mixed up with the budget. what i mean is that it has nothing to do with our future spending at all. what we have done is made a moral commitment. that should not be tainted with our ability to pay as we go or to cut back spend iing. real issues. >> if you want to deal with the struggle. when you want to consider the medicare trust fund we have 38 months left and something you might find interesting as a thought exercise. how many of our you viewers are demanding and want a balanced budget? you realize the date after you pass the borrowing authority, it is time to start understanding when you borrow 40 cents on every cent that you spend, where does that lead you? >> as long as you lead the constitutional obligations out of this debate, then we can move on. right up until the resolution date. >> i'm saying the constitution says nobody shall impede the president's obligation. >> i'll leave that alone. i just want to quote. i'm
was first elected to the house. thanks to california's new, i guess we will call it, the jungle primary system in which the top two candidates compete regardless of party after a primary. he beat the 80-year-old lawmaker after appearing here on "the daily run-down" in may. what's wrong with experience in washington. >> there is nothing wrong with experience. experience where you have an entrenched i am couple been who in our case has become disconnected with from the district and hasn't lived in california for over 20 years and, of course, this bizarre behavior we have seen from him has caused him what seniority really means in congress. >> he spent the last six years as an east bay prosecutor and returning to washington. he worked as a congressional intern 11 years ago. supporting himself by working two jobs, he waited on members of congress table. >> 11 years later after serving gym towels in the morning and serving them meals in the evening, very close to an opportunity to serving with them in the halls of congress. >> was that the restaurant, tortilla coast? >> it is. >> we should g
've had a bruising election, the fiscal cliff, of course the tragedy in newtown, and it does feel like in washington very little can get accomplished right now. our poll shows 56% favor tighter gun control laws, 52% want illegal immigrants who hold jobs to apply for legal status. so, liz, what are his second term priorities going to be? what are we going to hear from him? >> well, look, i think he's already signaled what they're going to be. he's made it very clear that big immigration package is going to be put together. he feels a need to address gun control in the wake of newtown. and, you know, he's going to have to face the tax issue, as well. it's not just raising the debt ceiling that he's going to have to deal with. but he's going to have to negotiate with the republicans and perhaps try to change the tax code. all of these things are things he's already signaled he wants to do. what's fascinating is that this is a president who wanted to be a domestic president in the last -- in his first term and he was saddled with an economic situation and two wars to deal with. now is a sh
. this political turmoil comes just months ahead of national elections. >> instead of millions, security officials say it is more like 25,000 protesters gathered in the parliaments in islamabad. there have been isolated clashes, and there was violence as demonstrators reached the heavily fortified area around the parliament building. gunshots were heard, but it was unclear if they were from protesters or police. he is so far unknown in pakistani politics and is demanding the government step down immediately and that a caretaker government be set up to ensure that elections may reflect a truly democratic result. >> this is absolutely laughlin and democratic. we are here in front of the parliamentary house, parliament house, just to say -- save our country from collapse. and he blames the government for incompetence and corruption, and as if on cue, the country's supreme court has now ordered the arrest of the democratically elected prime minister on corruption charges. this is the government has been weak on countering terrorism. -- they say the government has been weak on countering terrorism. >>
be popular, but he is leading a party that is not even registered to take part in the elections and many want to know who is financially backing him. political leaders are working to resolve this crisis. >> there are a lot of suspicion among the government and its coalition, but even among opposition and the main opposition party, that have taken a very strong stand against him. they are saying that whatever he is doing is derailing an attempt -- is attempting to derail democracy. >> pakistan will go to the polls later this year for the first peaceful transition of power under an elected government. some say the march and the prevailing political uncertainty will make that difficult. >> in the u.s., new york state is announcing some of the toughest gun control laws in the country. governor andrew cuomo signed legislation that strengthened the ban on assault weapons and aims to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. >> background checks on all private sales -- smart, because the old system made no sense. if you want to a gun dealer to buy a gun, then you had to go through a background
for the and not duration. a hard-fought campaign as both sides worked hard to try to get their candidate elected. this is a time for celebration. ♪ tonight, the kids got their turn. katy perry kicked off the party hosted by michelle obama and joe biden to honor young americans. >> earlier in the day, the first family participated in the national day of service. tonight, several states are celebrating. oklahoma went red for mitt romney, but their party tonight is a bipartisan celebration of the presidency. >> it does not matter if we agree politically. we are all here because we love our country and we love the political system. >> rock stars like common tonight are d.c. dignitaries. he worked hard on this campaign and knows who he wants to dance with. >> i got a go with michelle obama. she is an incredible woman. she is from ch>> the message from these celebrities young voters can make a difference. >> do know the facts. get up and do it is cool right now, that is vote. the same thing that got obama to be president two times. that momentum. the people are going to create new demand. >> all of
is moving to the left very quickly. president obama's election has emboldened many liberals and funding taxpayer abortion, legalized narcotics and gay marriage. overseas the same thing is going on as the left is surging. in rome on sunday a group of gay activists stripped off their searches revealing the words in gay we trust. the pope was in the middle of a public prayer as the protesters tried to shout him down. >> [shouting] >> go with a message to pope to shut up his mouth and not to give his ad vices to those people who decide to legalize gay marriage. >> bill: italian police carried the protesters away but chances are nothing much will happen to them. in france the new socialist president has vowed to enact gay marriage. that has angered some french citizens including the sizeable muslim nation. so also last sunday they took to the streets saying they want traditional marriage to be upheld in france. >> whenever so many people are in the streets, it shows us that it's a law that's not accepted by lots of people. the thing they should do is a eleven dumb. then we will know what peo
now. with the latest results of the national elections we've been saying it more strenuously and more strongly. the bulk of the republican party seems not to be listening, as you just pointed out. they call it a communications problem or they call it a -- we're just not getting the really hard core message of the republican party across. i'm afraid they are getting that message across. and that message is tinged with intolerance for women, minorities, lgbt community and for others who don't, you know, measure up to the mitt romney image of the other percent, the 47% that doesn't count is what republicans simply don't appeal to. >> are they on their way to being a regional party? >> i think they're on their way to committing suicide, very frankly. this has happened before in our history where an existing party has either morphed into another or died and this might just be happening again. if they don't adjust the way they're looking at the rest of this country, if they don't adjust some of their very platform principles, they're done. they're finished. we can put a fork in them. they'r
presidential overreach in second terms. we are very cautious about that. on the other hand, i didn't get re-elected just to bask in re-election. >> michael, he does not sound like he is going to be basking in much of anything other than -- >> no sign of it. >> the torrent of hate mail and support from some corners. i wonder on the eve of this inauguration whether -- what do you think of the to do list that the president has, and to put it in some context for us. we know he has limited -- a fairly limited amount of time to get this done. is this a little ambitious? is the roster too much? >> probably not, but you have to remember what his experience was at the beginning of the first term zoosh right. >> most presidents can come in and people will say what are your priorities and here's my list. obama had so many things coming at him from every single direction that this is in a way almost like a first term. a person coming in for the first time, you know, giving us a little bit of an idea of what he would like to do. sure. his list is much too ambitious. he knows that. most second term presidents, a
is apparently one party doesn't understand we had an election in november and they lost. which means that you move on and you let the president be the president of the united states. these guys still want to fight the old battles of 2012. >> but they're giving this extension now. >> a three-month extension. the white house should tell them to go shove it. you can't run a government three months at a time. you have to have a long-term planning. bad for the markets. bad for the country. bad for the economy. let's make clear, definitive decisions. you lost. let's come together and compromise. pass the debt ceiling and talk about spending cuts if that's what you want to talk about. >> i want to read what "the washington post" conservative columnist had to say about the republican strategy. here's what he said. he wrote, obama's post-election arrogance and intransigence can put you in a fighting mood. i sympathize. this is what he's telling the republicans but i'm tending toward the realist view. don't force the issue when you don't have the power s. that what we're seeing with the debt kreeling i
the will of the world. the 1800 election may have been the most important election in world history because it was the first time power had been peacefully transferred after an election and this great healing moment. i think this president feels the way roosevelt did in '37. >> well, of course, nobody believes thomas jefferson and john adams snuck out of town ahead of time because he didn't want to be there to witness his defeater making that speech. so it wasn't exactly a healthy time but second terms have been rough. if i were obama, i wouldn't be paying attention to either of those speeching. i would be paying attention to the man on whose holiday this inauguration falls. >> martin luther king. >> martin luther king, because that is really what can make obama stand out. it was what made people excited about him in the first inauguration was this moment in history. it's yet another moment in history, and it comes on the 50th anniversary of the march on washington, the 150th anniversary of the emancipation proclamation. >> it's interesting, he's going to be taking the oath on lincoln's bib
through they wonder why they bothered to get re-elected but i think president obama is in a position to put pressure on the congress because of the nature in which he won. he demonstrated there is now at the presidential level a pretty reliable consistent majority coalition that democrats have. and there's incentive for republicans to try to shake up this electoral alignment. and i think that gives him some leverage on several issues. guns to some extent. immigration even more so. >> and certainly we've seen a change in the president in the last few weeks. is this something that we can expect in the second term, do you think, overall, a more aggressive president obama? >> i think clearly. look what happened here. again, i go back to the election. democrats have often been con strained on some of these issues. guns is a perfect issue. we went over a decade where democrats didn't talk about the issue, largely by the fear of losing conservative white voters, blue collar voters, older voters. the president lost all those voters. he did badly with all of them and still won and he won 332
the republicans so that people will be angry with them. am i wrong? he has been doing that since elections day, i wrote a column ever since september pointing out entire strategy for the fiscal cliff was to split the republicans. it had nothing to do his offers had nothing to do with solving the fiscal issue or solving the debt. he showed nothing to solve the debt since he was elected in 2008. he appoints a commission two years later and ignored it he has never talked about any structure turley cuts in entitle wants. he has no interest in that. he wants the entitlement state. if you want a european style entitlement state you need european style taxation. that's all he is interested in. but his strategy with fiscal cliff as is his strategy wonderful the debt ceiling is to split fracture and therefore neuter republicans in the house because that is all that stands between him and total dominance of washington in his second term. he wants a return to 2009-2010 when he had control of both houses he had a super majority in the senate. huge majority in the house. and revolutionized healthcare and pass

bush, the elder took over. she was there in 1985, president reagan's re-election. she was there in 1981, the first reagan inaugural. that's andrea mitchell. if i end up doing these for as long as andrea mitchell has done these, i will be covering every inauguration from now until 2041, by which time i will be coming to you, presumably, as a ho hologram. so help me god. second inaugural, as opposed to a first inaugural when one president is leaving and another is starting, and we're covering a second inauguration, like we will be this year there's something different. governing is already under way. the president has started some things that he intends to finish in his second term. sort of a sense of continuity, well informed expectation about what kind of president this is going to be and where he is likely to go. when president obama was inaugurated. first time, there was none of that certainty and expectation, right? the country and all of us were caught up in the historical enormity of the fact that the united states of america was about to swear in our first african-american preside
in november when the election was framed on social issues, they won't think about this. we are trying to use the kids, lack of a better term, as the national props why the politicians are stealing the money. my generation is going to inherit so much money that we never had a chance to earn. we have to pay that off through working extra hours and standard of living will be lower because of that. neil: your generation, guys like your age and my daughter's age or you're a little older than those showcased today, but not a lot older. you are their big brothers and sisters, and you are trying to send a message to the president that, look, this is something that bears attention as well. when you say that, and you just point out that a lot of young people don't agree with that, they like this president, they don't seem to be focused on this spending, what's that say about your generation? >> i think my generation has been not educated properly, first of all, but, also, my generation does not care about the issues, and they are going to have to face a hard reality soon. when they graduate college, t
